For nearly seven years, Genaro "Chicanito" Hernandez fought and defended WBA and WBC titles in the 130-pound weight class against some of the division's best boxers. His first belt came from knocking out Daniel Londas in the ninth round to pick up the vacant WBA junior lightweight title. Hernandez defended his strap eight times before vacating it himself in order to pick up a hefty paycheck against Oscar De La Hoya. Even though he lost that fight via sixth-round stoppage, Hernandez dethroned The Professor, Azumah Nelson, two years later to win the WBC title by split decision. He kept that title for over a year, defending it against fine opponents like Carlos “Famoso” Hernandez. Chicanito’s title reign and career ended in 1998 when his corner stopped his fight with Floyd Mayweather, Jr. in the eight round. Boxingtalk got Hernandez's thoughts about his career highlights and what he is doing now with the sport of boxing.
